Yeah--the one we were talking about the other day. Some of the best, and some real sloppy. How can the vocals be so good on UJB and...well, subpar on Til?

I know what you mean, WT. There's something about "Till" that seemed to throw them vocally, when played live. The same could be said for "Mason's Children." Both faced premature retirements- IMHO.

Absofuckinlutely!

I know our friend CLIFF, and others, really like MChild, but I have never been able to get past the vocals.

Maybe if they had studio version they would have nailed it?

Now that's funny, I was just reading the liner notes to the expanded Workingman's Dead, and they say they DID record a studio version of Mason's, it was supposed to end the album after Casey Jones. They discarded it because they thought the vocals were too 'sweet' WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I'm with you on that, I would have loved to hear it. The studio take must have been bricked up in a wall or something, because they put on a live version from Hawaii instead...with lousy vocals as always.

I thought the studio version was on So Many Roads (I don't own the set).
